Advance Your ID Career with Offsite

IDC Workshop

Sept 14, 2022

Founders Room

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Offsite is a 12-week online program disrupting design education that offers a real-world view of the design profession through the instruction of industry leaders. Filling the gap between academia and industry, Offsite covers those practical skill sets often lightly discussed in school but learned on the job, including: business of design: how stakeholders outside of the design studio affect design; design for manufacturing: showing the real world constraints of materials, processes, and cost; design discourse: developing productive opinions in speaking about design; CAD for visualization: giving students up-to-date rendering skills to best display their work; real world sketching: drawing a distinction between beautiful sketch art online and the real sketching designers use as a vehicle of communication; and professional self-presentation: putting all these components together to tell the story of a student’s work.

During this lecture, you'll get to hear from two of our instructors: Michael DiTullo, IDSA, and Spencer Nugent. You'll get a sneak peek at what Offsite is, how we foster community, what our curriculum looks like, and why we believe Offsite is helping close the gap between academia and industry.
